We are the Jefferson-Belmont Regional Solid Waste Authority AKA the JB Green Team. State law requires each Ohio county to establish or join other counties to form a “solid waste management district.” In 1989, Jefferson and Belmont Counties formed the Jefferson-Belmont Regional Solid Waste Authority (JBRSWA). The JBRSWA Board of Trustees is composed of 15 members representing both Counties as specified in the provisions of the Ohio Revised Code 3734.54. In 2011, the JBRSWA began to operate its recycling operations and services under the AKA name of the “JB Green Team” to help our residents become more familiar with the programs we offer.
The JBRSWA/JB Green Team is responsible for implementing the a solid waste management plan designed to achieve the goals set by the Ohio EPA for waste reduction, recycling and reducing reliance on land filling waste generated within the two counties. For many years we have received the majority of our funding through tipping fees generated by landfills and transfer stations in the district. However, in 2014 the amount of fees the JBRSWA/JB Green Team revenues were greatly reduced forcing the Authority to implement another funding source. Fees and tax revenues are used to provide programs and services for our residents, businesses and industries.
